    Optimised extract almost 8x bigger than unoptimised extract

    Andrew Watson

      I have an extract that's quite large, 60MB, with a few calculated fields which are pushed together into a hierarchy. On optimising the extract the size grows to over 460MB. Is this normal?

       

      Initially I thought it was corrupted so tried re-creating and the exact same thing happened - unoptimised = 60MB, optimised = 460MB, which implies there's no corruption - and the dashboards still work as intended.

       

      I guess I'm putting this out there to see if it's anything I should be concerned about or whether it's just normal behaviour.
